I have asked customer support at Amazon and this is the reply I received:

“You need to clearly state the following on your sites: mower is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

This link should be placed on a main page that includes links that refer your visitors to Amazon.com. You only need to post this information once within the same website.”

What does this mean exactly? Is it OK to have this disclaimer inside a page on my website titled ‘Affiliate disclaimer’? Or do I need to have the whole statement visible on every page that has an Amazon link?

I have read the associates operating agreement over at Amazon but I am not very good at interpreting the legal terms and phrases that are usually contained in these documents. Are there any Amazon affiliates who can fill me in on what is actually needed to stay within the legal requirements so I don’t have my account banned?
